Why is it that Mischa Barton looks like a cute little girl down on a farm, but sounds like a 50yr old trucker? Even the kid in the movie asked if she was a "dike", thought we retired that word, but he did ask. I don't think it was scripted, it just came to mind and he ad-libbed. The movie wasn't that good, but I didn't feel like I wasted any time. Its about an architect who builds freaky buildings, someone murders 13 people inside them by burring them alive in the walls. Mischa works as an engineer who gets buildings ready for demolition and this place is her next job. There are some twists and turns, but nothing that makes you step back. Watch if on Sci-Fi one day, but I wouldnt rent it, like I did.
Its a comedy so not a lot to discuss without ruining it. Its pretty funny, had some decent out loud laughs. The part with the donut and dildo was the best. It seems like most "provocative" comedies are starting to blend together, hopefully we still get some standouts. Its worth the rent.
Let the Right One In:
This movie was awesome, you must see this. My sister also wrote a good review, go check it out here (Mother Firefly's Faster Pussycats) . I am not a fan of love stories, what I think is a love story, doesn't qualify for Friday night date movies. For instance, True Romance , I think this is a love story and its one of my favorites. I think Let the Right One In is a love story and now it is one of my favorites. Its not just a favorite because of the "love" aspect, the entire thing rocked. Directors who make movies that aren't meant to break box offices, always seem to use the coolest, subtle, screen shots. They have a way to make every scene brilliant, even if it has no meaning. Also there is something about a horror film done in the winter and there is even more of something about a vampire movie filmed in the dead of winter. There is something about the lack of ambient "happy" sounds that we have in the winter. You can experience this in the country areas of Michigan in the winter. I am sure that this is even more true in places that experience dead winters. When movies are done like this, they produce more of a intament moment for me, when its just me, the character and that's it. There wasnt one thing wrong with this film. My only thing would be to try the Swedish version and use subtitles, dont do the dubbed version, the voice overs are really bad. I looked around on imdb forums about the movie and there was talk of an alternate ending, but I couldnt find one. I was also worried that the forums would be flooded with people complaining about the brief nude scene. I am happy to report that there was only one post, I am sick of people nit picking and thinking they all know what is best for us. It's art, thats all.
LTROI Deleted Scenes, please watch the movie first..
